Nina Dasher attended the annual Arc of Georgia Conference in Macon on Sept. 15-17 at the Anderson Conference Center. David Pitonyak's topics were "Beyond Behaviors" and "The Importance of Belonging."

This workshop was about ideas for moving beyond interventions and coverage to a system that supports enduring, freely chosen relationships.
